There’s no doubt about it, whether we like it or not, the royals, politician’s wives and politicians themselves have a huge impact on our style.
Whatever highstreet number Kate Middleton wears sells out in seconds, while her inlaw Zara Phillips shows us that casual can be cool.
We’re hot on Michelle Obama’s style, and Samantha Cameron’s love of Erdam and patterns also shapes the way some of us dress.
Then there’s the politicians that we thought would never feature in an influential top five. And in this case we’re talking about Sarah Palin.
We never thought this middle aged politician’s uniform high waisted skirts and satin blouses would make the grade but it seems this style, plus her love of all outdoorsy wear has hit a fashion note with the nation – well they do say fashion is fickle.
See the gallery below for our top five.
